More about Oaklands
Oaklands occupies an elevated position overlooking paddocks and the forest. The garden surrounds the 1904 house (not open) and is a lovely mix of English cottage garden plants and a more international collection of plants and trees enjoying the almost neutral soil. A collection of acid loving azaleas and rhododendrons thrive with some additional care. Spring flowers abound and are encouraged to naturalise.
Climbing plants adorn buildings and fences, wisteria, roses, clematis are some of many. A large collection of grasses grace the patio by the conservatory and jostle for space with hostas and imaginative summer planters.
The orchard's central feature is the rose covered well and is stocked with a large collection of fruit and specimen trees. In the paddock is a large naturalised pond, which with the wild flower filled hay meadow provide a haven for wild life.
The box bordered vegetable garden, fruit cage and fruit trees provide year round produce.
Take a walk around the orchard, paddock and pond or sit and admire the view.
